Odoo 9: How to get compute field values in Create ORM method

on 8/31/16, 2:35 AM 226 views

In Odoo 9:

am not finding a way to get the value of compute fields in the create method. However the same had achieved in other version by calling the function of compute-fields,

Say for instance in Sale Order:

'amount_total' is a compute field which calls the function "_amount_all" to calculate the amount.

Now in create method, the value for amount_total is yet  to be filled hence in order to access it, one can just call the function _amount_all which will evaluate and return the value of amount_total.

So same way I would like to do in Odoo 9  as well, but not sure whether it is due to this api decorator or so, am unable to achieve .

Any thoughts are welcomed.

dear deep,

you need to do something like this,




def _amount_in_words(self):


this Function uses to get the ratification amount in words.


self.amount_words_letters = amount_to_text((self.amount_currency or 0.00))

amount_text= fields.Char(compute='_amount_in_words', string='Amount In Words', store=True)

I hope I helped you.

Wish I could say it helped me, but sadly no, Thanks for the reply.
